Re: Hero 9 for telemetry

I'll happily share my files with you.  I have a double mount so I have been using the Hero 8 and Hero 9 side by side.  I mentioned in another post that the GoPro Hero 8 GPS icon will light up and stay steady.  The GoPro Hero 9 GPS icon will light up, go dark, light up, go dark as if it's acquiring a signal and then losing it again.  

 

One thing I did read was that someone had GPS data on the first chapter of his recording but none on subsequent chapters.  He found that disabling hypersmooth meant the rest of the chapters would have GPS data retained on them.  I'm hoping this points to a simple firmware error with the GPS but so far, the Hero 9 is proving to be terrible when it comes to GPS data.
